WINNIPEG — One of my favourite cookbooks is “Jerusalem.” The book is as much an intriguing story about the people who dwell together in the ancient city as it is a catalogue of excellent recipes. The book is where I first came to know the egg and tomato sauce dish known as Shakshuka. The authors of “Jerusalem” state that the dish is actually Tunisian in origin.

I first tasted the dish prepared by a French-trained, Italian chef in a little café called “The Fat Hen” in Seattle. I have also enjoyed it at a couple of spots in Winnipeg. Bermax Café and Bistro is a kosher Italian café that does a very good job with their version of Shakshuka.

Zippy Tomato & Tortellini Soup

Us Winnipeggers are a hearty bunch. We work hard, love our Jets and survive some pretty intense weather. At the end of the day, we want to relax, but the after-work dinner rush is all too real. It can be pretty difficult to muster up the energy and creativity to put dinner on the table when it feels like you haven’t seen the sun in weeks. On days like that, it is tempting to order in or make a run to the McDonald’s drive-thru, but that isn’t always the tastiest and budget-friendly choice, now is it? Personally, when I am feeling the winter energy drain, I make soup. Homemade soups are quick, hearty and really difficult to mess-up.
